Actually I'm assuming the exact opposite. I'm not asking for special

separate control panel).

FWIW, the HIG does specify that you should be able to over-ride the
toolbar policy on a per-app basis:

so you could argue that Evolution isn't being fully compliant here.  But
practically no apps do this, and we were thinking about dropping that
guideline anyway as it just adds a bunch more menu items that most
people will never touch.  So now's the time to tell us if we
shouldn't :)
